Rainbow Lattice Sunstone, Natural Specimen
Harts Range Area, Northern Territory, Australia
49.2 gr., 5.14 cm x 3.93 cm x 2.50 cm
 

This specimen is not polished in anyway and is as found, just washed off in water. As you can see in the photos, there is good visible iridescence on all sides. 

"Rainbow Lattice Sunstone" as it is called, is a type of Orthoclase Feldspar that has geometric patterned inclusions of Ilmenite and Hematite.
When properly oriented, these inclusions take on a visible iridescence that give them a rainbow type coloration. This unique mineral is from a rather small discovery in the Hart Range Area of Australia's Northern Territory.
